I’m really pleased that I don’t have any commitments to stop me taking part in this month’s 24 Hour Readathon (details are here for those that don’t know about it) which kicks off at lunchtime (for me) on 21 April.

I haven’t participated for a couple of years so I thought it would be interesting to go back and see what I achieved last time:

  • I read 4.5 books;
  • which involved 1025 pages;
  • representing 10 hours 15 minutes reading time and
  • raised £150 for charity

This year I am determined to do better and stay up for the whole 24 hours and I have also set up a proper fundraising page for my chosen charity which is Alzheimer’s Research. I’m hoping to double the amount raised to £300. And I’m already working hard on the tbr pile for the challenge.

Going to be fun!

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence

If you would like to get in touch you can contact me at brideofthebookgod (at) btinternet (dot) com.
